I have 150 new songs, but won't release them: Atif AslamPakistan
You'd think Atif Aslam rests easy as his occasional hit Bollywood numbers dominate the airwaves, but the popular singer claims to be just as engrossed in making music in India as he was in Pakistan.
"I have a complete library of 150 songs at the moment," he told IANS. "I haven't released them because the business model has completely changed."
Atif, whose last album Meri Kahani came out in 2008, elaborated that people now prefer to download singles rather than buy albums from music stores, so he has shifted his focus to self-composed singles. His next single 'Zindagi Aaraha Hoon Main', which will star Heropanti actor Tiger Shroff, is soon to be released.
Talking about the new track, Atif said: "It's not a preachy song. It's just about how you enjoy your life. Whatever you are doing, just enjoy yourself."
Given that he is so involved in his music, one would think he hardly has the time to think of acting in Bollywood, but Atif hasn't completely ruled out the possibility.
"I might act in a Bollywood film. I'm listening to quite a few scripts now, but nothing has intrigued me so far. Let's see. I probably could do anything other than chocolate boy kind of roles," said Atif, who made his acting debut in Shoaib Mansoor's drama film Bol in 2011.
